Green Builder® Media and its affiliates and partners respect the privacy of its visitors. Green Builder Media does not collect any personal information through the website without the knowledge of the visitor.
The following process explains our information gathering and disseminating practices at www.greenbuildermedia.com. Please read this information so that you can feel comfortable about participating in our community.
Our Web server collects the IP address, operating system and browser software used by our visitors. An IP address (which is different than an email address) can tell us the user's Internet service provider and based on that, can suggest the geographic location of the connection. We also collect information about which pages they visit, the order in which they were visited, and which hyperlinks they click. This information helps us evaluate the effectiveness of various parts of the site.
For the same purposes, we use "cookies" - small text files placed on your computer's hard drive - to help track your usage of our site. Cookies don't include personal information about you, but they are unique to each user, which allows Green Builder Media computers to distinguish between users and can save you time when you return to a part of the site and repeat an activity. Cookies placed on your computer by third parties by or through the Site, if any, are not the responsibility of Green Builder Media and are not subject to the TC.
As a Green Builder Media member, you are required to provide certain information about yourself upon registration such as your name, address, email address, and business affiliation.
By providing any personal information to this Site, you fully understand and unambiguously consent to the collection and processing of such information in any country.
As well, your registration information is captured in our database when you register to attend or view any of our live and archived webcasts.
This personal information will be used to process orders and to contact you regarding technical updates, special offers and upcoming events. When members register to participate in our live or archived sponsor webcasts, full contact information of the user may be provided to the vendor according to any contract agreement with that particular vendor/sponsor. All promotions are sent out through www.greenbuildermedia.com, www.GreenBuilderCollege.com, or other associated web properties.
In order to provide you with co-branded services, and to improve our features, we will sometimes share your information with our partners.
We reserve the right to disclose any information if such action is necessary (a) to conform to the requirements of the law or to comply with legal process or subpoena served on Green Builder Media, (b) to protect and defend the legal rights or property of Green Builder Media, the Site, or its users, or (c) in an emergency, to protect the health and safety of its users or the general public. We further reserve the right to release any information concerning any user if that user participates (or is reasonably suspected of participating) in any illegal activity, even without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order. We cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who may be using our servers or services for illegal activities. We also reserve the right to report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement for investigation or prosecution.
For all our transactions, we employ reasonable and current Internet security methods and technologies. Where appropriate, we password protect, use SSL encryption techniques for credit card information and install firewalls. We strive to protect you. We encourage our participating service providers to adopt and honor their own consumer privacy policies. For all our efforts to safeguard your privacy, no system can be guaranteed. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, or that we transmit to you, or guarantee that it will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. Once we receive your information, we use reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
We appreciate your participation in Green Builder Media communities, and will do our best to honor your requests. Any and all questions about www.greenbuildermedia.com. Green Builder Media, and other subsidiaries, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
